MTV:Here's a little known fact: Earth Defense Force 2017 was the first game to ever be reviewed on MTV Multiplayer back in 2007. Prior to that, the giant alien bug and robot hunting franchise was a delight that was reserved only for Japanese gamers. Since then, the EDF have only graced consoles one other time, for 2011's Insect Armageddon, which brought some good (and bad) changes to the franchise along with a new developer, Vicious Cycle. Fortunately, fans that were won over by the original EDF 2017 release now have a chance to relive their original battle with the space invaders, and do it anywhere they want to. Sandlot and D3 Publisher have re-released their original Xbox 360 exclusive epic for the PlayStation Vita, making Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable one of the best ways to fight giant monsters on a tiny screen.
